Wow, sorry I'm a little late to this discussion, but I couldn't help noticing that other strat that Rory has behind him in the photos; the sunburst with the maple neck. I never saw that guitar before, although I only saw him 3 times after 1988 (on the '91 US Tour). Did he use that guitar a lot in gigs? And if so, why? Maybe it wasn't his?


Hi Doug,
It maybe the 58 sunburst stratocaster we see here http://www.rorygallagher.com/#/archives/guitars

Sensual presence, intense focus, and... did I mention sensual?

Definition of uniqueness - 'radically distinctive and without equal'. That says it for me!

sorry diana, i can't help you but it's nice to see that you're back

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

Rory had it all- songwriting talent, guitar innovator, looks, superior work ethic, and a gentle attitude. He lived the "rock and roll dream" kids my age aspired to. He truly enjoyed his work; his bliss. No glitter, no glam, no gimmicks. The Real Deal.
